In an interview today with Newsmax, Gen. Michael Flynn called for Mark Milley to resign “in disgrace” over phone calls with Chinese general Li Zuocheng.
“It’s illegal, it’s immoral, and it’s unethical, and Mark Milley should be immediately, immediately told to drop his stars and he should be resigning in disgrace if not fired publicly,” Flynn told Newsmax host Eric Bolling.
Flynn continued, “Mark Milley is doing such incredible… grave damage to the institute of the military by continuing to stay in the office of chairman of the joint chiefs.”
In regards to Afghanistan, Flynn added, “For him to stand up there and say that they didn’t know, that’s an excuse. You don’t make excuses at this level of our armed forces.”
Prior to the interview, news broke that a spokesman for Milley defended the calls in a statement, essentially confirming that they took place as they were originally alleged in books scheduled to be released soon.
